Publicising your blog…

How do you publicise your blog? Do you even bother?

Do you blog as a creative outlet from your hectic life? Or are you blogging because you want something to happen from your blog, like a book deal or money?

I’m only asking because I’m intrigued by it all! I consider myself to be a bit of a low maintenance blogger, I blog because it makes me feel part of an online sewing community and for me it’s about learning, finding inspiration and meeting (metaphorically speaking) like-minded individuals over the internet.

In the last few months I’ve met a couple of people who blog and they’ve presented me with their business cards. I don’t know many friends (in real life) that blog, so to get handed a business card, is a completely new phenomenon! I’m intrigued by it all. Are people so determined to increase their readership or am I simply out of touch and this is now completely normal for bloggers?

Tell me, anyone else out there with business cards for their blog? And if so, why?

    I occasionally link to mine from my reviews on Pattern Review, but only when there’s extra material on the blog. Other than that, I don’t bother trying to publicise it. Business cards sound fearfully organised to me!

    A bit like you I blog mainly as a way of being part of the knitting/sewing craft community. I actually have 2 blogs, one is a bit more public and is related to cooking, the other crafty one I don’t publicise at all and it’s just really friends, family and people I have either met in real life or swapped with who know where it is…the blog is also where I can be a girl since in real life the house is full of boys…even the 3 cats are male…

      That’s so funny that even your cats are male!! Poor you! I’d love to see what you make, I find it so inspiring seeing other people’s creativity. Especially sometimes when you think a certain pattern is nothing special and then somebody comes along and makes you think otherwise!
